Tennis clinic – Sat Jan 6

Wow what a great afternoon of tennis! 17 keen tennis players attended a tennis clinic held at Princes Risborough Tennis Club today. Icebreakers, station drills , focusing on a doubles strategy , tea & scones followed by a doubles competition. Fortunate with the weather but a bit fresh,  a great afternoon of tennis enjoyed by all, even the coaches . Thanks to Rebecca Burns and Karen Atkinson but big thanks to all those who attended, a lovely afternoon . Well done to Mike, Ali, Jayne and Susan for winning their groups .  Must have been the amazing placement serves and communication they took on board from the doubles strategy session earlier!!  See you at the next tennis clinic. These clinics cater for all standards from social club player to regular team player. For more details contact Mel.

Mr & Mrs Competition

A great afternoon of fun tennis with 8 couples from the club. A round robin followed by a knockout format  gave us our seeded players . In the semis Michael and Tracy came up against Mel and Andy; Bob and Roz played Lee and Charles . Both semis were intense but the finalists for the tournament would be Charles and Lee, Mel and Andy .  With lots of ooohs and arrrrhs and very assertive calls by partners (you soon know who was the boss on both sides of the court !!) , the Winner of the Mr & Mrs Trophy 2017 was Mel and Andy. Thanks to everyone . Good fantastic food yet again . Salads by Sarah , sausage rolls by Ian, apple and almond cake by Linda (wow!!)  

Club Finals Day

The Club was blessed with variable weather for Finals’ Day held on 10 September, but it didn’t detract from a splendid day of competition and eating.  A healthy crowd witnessed some outstanding tennis and everybody agreed it had been a lovely occasion, wonderfully hosted and organised by our indomitable club coach Mel(anie).
